Promoting the work of natural history bloggers across the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
My name is Emily Dodd and I've been writing a 4 part blog for Greener Leith to try to encourage people to value birds and do the Big Garden Birdwatch. I've given a short summary of each of the articles below, I hope you enjoy reading / watching / listening to them.I was thrilled to see my efforts to get others involved featured in the Edinburgh Guardian too.http://www.guardian.co.uk/edinburgh/2011/jan/28/edinburgh-big-garden-birdwatch #RSPB #BGBW part 1: Give Garden Birds a Go http://www.greenerleith.org/greener-leith-news/2011/1/20/rspb-bgbw-1-give-garden-birds-a-go.htmlI told you all you needed to know to take part with Greener Leith and included links to audio birds, bird face photos, a dancing blue tit musical youtube video, photos from my primary school bird hide and a poem I wrote about Starlings. I expanded on why I think garden birds are great, in summary:They sing, They fly (and they’re quite heavy), They have nice faces, They hop, Watching them is such a privilege, Well I always did (and so did you?)The RSPB BGBW 2: Birds, the universal unifierhttp://www.greenerleith.org/greener-leith-news/2011/1/24/the-rspb-bgbw-2-birds-the-universal-unifier.htmlI diversify from garden birds in this post and hope, whatever you’re favourite story (think books, plays, films) there’ll be a British bird story to match. If you like foreign films, we have a special guest form Africa. The RSPB BGBW 3: How birds open doors (on meeting celebrities)http://www.greenerleith.org/greener-leith-news/2011/1/28/the-rspb-bgbw-3-how-birds-open-doors.htmlSimon King, The Queen and world Gannet expert, Bryan Nelson are just some of the celebrities I've met because of my fondness for feathered friends.The RSPB BGBW part 4: Doing it in a park for Greener Leith (coming soon)Here’s where I report on the watch, we made a podcast too (:You can find out more about me on my @auntyemily twitter profile page.
